On Friday, FL wanted to take the kids to the ski-slopes. It was something he had done with his own children and wanted to share with mine.
So we drove for two hours and arrived at the winter resort town in time for lunch. But the cafe queues were too long, so we set off for the slopes, to meet a notice: "Car park full. No ski or board hire." Back to the town.
We tried everywhere. Every single set of skis and snowboard was gone. Clearly everyone else had had the same idea as us.
So we bought two sledges... and drove home again.
We stopped at a wool shop in Aberlour on the way - hooray! And I was tempted by Drops Eskimo for Sylvi.. but they didn't have enough. So I bought some alpaca for mittens instead. More of that another day.
